Player Interviews
Ava: “Great run today! What are your thoughts on how you and your team’s season went?”

Caleb Brady- “We’re sad that our season ended, but it’s not all about the results, but the memories we all made along the way.Its a real brotherhood with those guys so despite us falling short of our goals, I wouldn’t trade anything in the world for this season.”

Ava: “Congrats on leading your team to states Daria! What are your overall thoughts on the meet, and states next weekend?”

Daria Cuellar-Hernandez- “I was nervous and it was crazy hot! Throughout the meet I just kept telling myself to go out and stay in the leading pack. Then I got up to the front and held on for dear life! It was kind of sad afterwards though because I always tell myself during workouts “if you can do the second to last, then you can do the last one.” This was my second to last race. I’ve made it to the finish line!”
